Green Wedding // Green Tree Farm // Catawissa, Pennsylvania

What an absolutely perfect wedding day! Gorgeous weather, stunning venue, and the most beautiful couple. Joanna and Ryan became one at Ryan’s parents house, Green Tree Farm in Catawissa, Pa. The whole family was there… even their donkey! Yes, you read that right. Scroll down if you don’t believe me! I love their love for the families. It definitely showed all day long.

I always cross my fingers for good lighting while the bride and groom are getting ready. I got so lucky this time because the lighting was out of this world and Joanna was glowing head to toe! The ceremony was sweet and to the point which allowed plenty of time for the champagne towers, LOTS of dancing, and surprise fireworks.

Congratulations again, Joanna + Ryan!

 
 

Irem Clubhouse // Amanda + Matt

Tug at my heartstrings, why don’t ya! It was such a gorgeous day for Amanda + Matt at Irem Clubhouse in Dallas, PA. They are seriously the cutest couple ever. Both wrote love letters to each other and exchanged them before the ceremony, which took place outdoors in the most lush lawn area. They said “I do” surrounded by their super sweet friends and family. Also, summer weddings are the absolute best because of the bright, fun colors like the pops of purple Amanda + Matt incorporated. Which so happens to be my favorite color.

I had so much fun tagging along on their special day. Wishing much love and happiness to the new Mr. + Mrs. Seyers!

Austin + Leanda // Rainy wedding day with a side of sunshine

I can't praise Leanda + Austin enough for being absolute troopers throughout their day. It wasn't scheduled to rain until after their ceremony but we all know how Mother Nature likes to play tricks on us. It started spitting rain within 5 minutes of walking down the aisle. If you ask me, it made for one heck of a story + images that you'll never forget! 

Not only did they stick out the rain throughout the ceremony, they were even willing to get wet for portraits. We never really know when the rain will stop on a wedding day, it may or it may not. So I like to get them done as soon as possible so we have them done and we don't miss anything. As luck would have it, later when the skies cleared, I said "Lets go back out!" (it was super laid back and I love wedding days like this!). Leanda + Austin headed back out for more portraits without an umbrella this time. What do you know, we get the most beautiful golden hour shortly after. Who would have known that a forecast for rain all day and a few heavy rain showers would all lead to gorgeous images with even a rainbow.

We ended the night with the closest of friends + family and if you ask me, it was the perfect ending!

PS. Can we also give a big clap to that wedding party who trusted me in the pouring rain so I could get 2 minutes of party portraits? YOU DA BOMB. 

Central Pennsylvania Wedding Photographer // Pine Barn Inn // Meghan + Ryan

The Moser wedding had a special place in my heart. From the time I met Meghan, I knew how in love and passionate she was about their relationship. The same with planning their wedding day. We chatted about details and plans and I knew it was going to be a wonderful, beautiful day for Meghan and Ryan. She told me about her gown from Cocoa Couture in Hershey, PA and the vision I had in my head didn't compare to its true beauty in person. Everything came together so perfectly, the florals by The Details Matter, tuxes from Tony's Tuxes and the exceptional cake + dessert bar from Bella's Bliss helped make their day one to remember. 

Their family is so kind and loving, everything combined made their day such a joy to photograph. They had a traditional Catholic ceremony at Saint Pius X that was full with their friends and family. Later, we headed down to Pine Barn Inn for their reception. An Elegant Production did a flawless job getting every one on the dance floor for a fun unforgettable night. We were able to end the night with a couple of night shots and that always seals the deal for me!
